Marvel’s The Avengers will be featured on the cover of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly and we have a first look at it! For a first impression, it’s certainly quite underwhelming and badly photoshopped. The cover consists of Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo posing awkwardly together. But if you look closer, you can definitely notice that it’s just a poorly put-together mish-mash of six separate pictures rather than a real photoshoot with everyone actually in the same room. Lame.
There is also a few tidbits in EW’s sneek peek with Renner saying “Just because they’re super heroes doesn’t mean they’re super friends,” and writer-director Joss Whedon telling Entertainment Weekly he was rewriting dialogue every day. “There is a weird element of: they handed me one of the biggest movies of all time,” says Whedon, “and I’m making it up as I go.” Everyone’s favorite bathroom magazine will presumably have more pictures inside and hopefully, they will look a lot better than the cover. Be sure to pick up a copy if you are interested.
The Avengers also stars Samuel L. Jackson who plays Nick Fury, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Clark Gregg and Cobie Smulders as SHIELD agents. The movie hits theaters May 4, 2012.
Update: EW has just released some a new still and two set photos. Those are a lot better than the ridiculous cover. Check the pictures out below!)
